Bolton Departure Good News

Statement by Stephen Young, Union of Concerned Scientists

WASHINGTON (September 10, 2019)—President Donald Trump has asked national security advisor John Bolton to resign. 

Below is a statement by Stephen Young, Washington representative for the Union of Concerned Scientists. 

“The departure of John Bolton is excellent news for American security. It means New START, the US-Russian arms control agreement, may be salvaged. Negotiations with North Korea will have more support. The likelihood of war with Iran declines. And our allies will be a whole lot happier.”
